ASBIS, Netgear partner

ASBIS Enterprises, an expert in IT distribution in the EMEA emerging markets, has been appointed as a distributor by Netgear, a global provider of technologically advanced networking products.

The distribution agreement covers all 26 countries that ASBIS addresses in the EMEA region. ASBIS will be offering Netgear’s complete range of products for end-users, business customers and service providers, including solutions for wireless, storage, security, web/email security, routers, firewalls and switches.

Laurent Journoud, Executive Vice President, ASBIS says “The deal with Netgear, boosts the company’s offering to the channel and will provide a lot more choice for partners. “This partnership creates more convenience for ASBIS customers of all levels as it extends our networking portfolio and allows all the components to be bought from one place,” he says. “We are definitely looking forward to bring Netgear’s top-of-the-line products closer to the markets of EMEA.”

Richard Jonker, MD – Emerging markets, Netgear, said “ASBIS has the right fit in coverage, product mix and mentality for Netgear ‘s consumer and SMB network products. We would like to expand our offering of reliable, affordable and simple networking gear to these regions. In economically challenging times, resellers and end-users turn to Netgear rather than to monolithic vendors with complex and expensive offerings.”

Jonker says with Netgear’s award-winning ReadyNAS network storage, ProSecure UTM’s and tailor-made switch portfolio the company caters to the needs of the regions that the Netgear addresses. I have a lot of trust in the competence of the management of ASBIS, whom I have seen developing their company since the nineties. Therefore I believe they will be instrumental in our growth plans for the following decade.
